First impressions -- I am in love with this home! I have found that, more often than not, hotels and other lodging places have their slickly-produced marketing photos available online, but what you see when you arrive is much different. The Inn at Grace Farm looks even better in person than it does in its online photos. When we drove up, I was so pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the Inn from both the street and inside. I was so impressed at the cleanliness and the unique decor. The Inn is fresh, simple, clean, cozy, and welcoming. This Inn was truly modern and wonderfully historic at the same time.
Innkeepers -- The innkeepers were so knowledgeable and helpful. They care about their home/Inn and about the comfort of their guests and their guests' total experience. Their reservation procedure was easy, and they responded quickly to my questions.
Outside/area -- The views are breath-taking. Looking across the street was like looking at a painting. We saw deer frolicking in the field with the mountains behind them and two ponies grazing in the front yard.
Originally, we were concerned about the distance from UVM, where we visited our family member. The expressway was convenient, and the drive gave us a different experience from that of the Burlington college area. It took us only about 20-25 minutes to get there. The drive was so picturesque, that it seemed shorter. Given that we had only 48 hours in the area, I would love for this beautiful Inn to have been closer to UVM. It is perfect for its surroundings, though. The location is part of the charm of this property.
Inside -- This place is clean! This was the most important consideration for me when deciding where to stay. I was not disappointed in the Inn at Grace Farm. The public areas, guest room, and bathroom were welcoming, clean and comfortable. Our room, though the smallest room there, was very roomy and large enough for us and all our bags. A rocking chair and a larger flat panel TV in our room, too. The Inn is a health-conscious, "green" inn. The bathroom was clean and stocked with organic Vermont hand soap and other nice toiletries in the shower. Thick towels and a very comfy mattress, too! I am always hot at night and it was hot outside. While I would love to have had air conditioning, I was glad the room had a fan and a nice window.
My favorite breakfast item was the baked berry and dumpling dish. There were very good coffees and teas available at all times, too.
There appeared to be guests of a wide age range staying while we were there. Innkeeper Liz helped guests make plans for their days. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, its sights and activities. There was a selection of tourist brochures, magazines, and books for our reference, also. We enjoyed sitting on the cushy couch in the common room drinking coffee and tea while reading through some of them.
We will definitely go back! This Inn far exceeded my expectations. I appreciated the request for shoes off and quiet times, so that I could sleep well at night, in order to fully-enjoy my Vermont days. Liz and Jason have cared for their Inn and it shows. They provded wonderful accommodations and outstanding hospitality. Looking forward to another visit....soon.
